Erste "The Rover" Meinungen

Da ist Rob gerade im weit entfernten Frankreich angekommen, schon gibt es die ersten Lobeshymnen auf seine Darstellung von Rey in "The Rover".

Und dass was die Kritiker da so von sich geben, ist mehr als zufriedenstellend.

Pearce is fiercely impressive here as a man who gave up on the human race even before the latest round of calamities, and if there are occasional glimpses of the kinder, gentler man he might once have been, we are more frequently privy to his savage survival instincts. But it’s Pattinson who turns out to be the film’s greatest surprise, sporting a convincing Southern accent and bringing an understated dignity to a role that might easily have been milked for cheap sentimental effects. With his slurry drawl and wide-eyed, lap-dog stare, Rey initially suggests a latter-day Lennie Small, but he isn’t so much developmentally disabled as socially regressed — an overprotected mama’s boy suddenly cast to the wolves — and Pattinson never forces or overdoes anything, building up an empathy for the character that’s entirely earned. He becomes an oasis of humanity in this stark, forsaken land.

Pattinson delivers a performance that, despite the character’s own limitations, becomes more interesting as the film moves along, suggesting that the young actor might indeed be capable of offbeat character work. But always commanding attention at the film’s center is Pearce, who, under a taciturn demeanor, gives Eric all the cold-hearted remorselessness of a classic Western or film noir anti-hero who refuses to die before exacting vengeance for an unpardonable crime.

Performances are pitched just right between hard-bitten and mournful. Guy Pierce, as all know, has stoically grizzled down to a fine art, while Pattinson manages his new non-heart-throb ground (the make-up team have wrought merry hell on his teeth) with admirable pathos. His limp, hick accent, facial tics and staccato delivery play second, third, fourth and fifth fiddle to a whole lot of heart, and one that Eric cannot help but fall for. If there’s one thing this violent metaphysical drama emphasises it’s that heart is, when all else fails, a man’s best friend.

Aber auch auf Twitter war einiges los:
Eines DER Highlights im Film ist neben Robs überzeugender Darstellung trotz vergilbter Zähne und Kurzhaarfrisur (alles andere als der Schönling den er ja angeblich sonst immer nur spielt - wo ich gleich wieder anführen muss, dass sich Robs Filmkarriere nicht nur auf den glitzernden Vampir beschränkt *arrrrg*) aber seine Gesangseinlage^^ Er trällert nämlich das Lied "Pretty Girl Rock" lauthals mit.
Wir sind jedenfalls jetzt schon gespannt wie ein Flitzebogen und können weitere Clips, Trailer und dann den endgültigen Film Ende des Jahres kaum erwarten :D :D

proves he has the skills to continue to act for as long as he wants & w/whom he wants, thanks to David Michod's

The highlight of my day thus far: Robert Pattinson singing alone to Pretty Girl Rock ( ) in THE ROVER.

The Rover is tough stuff. Biggest departure 4 Robert Pattinson to date. Movie has impressive moments but too precious 4 material.

The Rover = Masterpiece.

Just left screening. My love for Guy Pearce knows no bounds but I also was surprised by Pattinson. Remarkable film.

THE ROVER: Clint & Mel comparisons for dystopic Aussie road pic, but Steinbeck loneliness resonates. Guy Pearce & Robert Pattinson, top form

So great to see Rob Pattinson actually act. Should have done a gritty genre piece long ago.

Guy Pearce is great as a man of few words, but Pattinson never been better.

  1. THE ROVER with Robert Pattinson just premiered @FdC_officiel. A gritty post-apocalyptic western. Great film!
@FdC_officiel Robert Pattinson gives a career high performance!
